The boards are sharp at the corners, have slight fading to the vibrancy, but are overall near fine, although signs of shelf wear. The front recto has a previous owner's inscription. The rough cut text blocks are white, but have been subject to yellowing and browning, with light foxing too. Overall this is a near fine copy.
